"We have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do,
but our eyes are upon you."
(2 CHRONICLES 20:12)
The calendar has turned to a new year; several months of unknowns lie ahead. On every day of our faith journey, we find ourselves going where we’ve never been before. Sometimes we’re tempted to chart our own course, assuming we know the way; or we may presume to suggest solutions to God in our prayer times until we realize only He knows all the issues and variables involved. Jehoshaphat acknowledged Judah’s need of divine intervention. He called the nation to pray and fast. God took ownership of this battle for His people, and Jehoshaphat’s troops were spectators.
At times our lives can become like the mystery tours some thrive on. Most would rather know the itinerary in advance. Believers know their ultimate destination, though not all the routes and stops of the exciting journey. The compass needle indicates which direction to travel. If we think we recognize a landmark and ignore God’s directions, we may find ourselves traveling in circles instead of progressing on course to a fabulous destiny.
2 Chronicles 20:1-22
